We all know that you are an experienced Southside Chicago community organizer. And what do community organizers do? They give inflammatory speeches. Mr. President, we know that with the aid of modern electronic teleprompters, you now have the reputation of being an outstanding speaker. Well, at least your supporters in the mainstream media tell us that you are.
But Mr. President, words are supposed to have meaning, especially if they are the words of the President of the United States of America. You started off with what is now known as your Cairo speech. It must have been a good one. It resulted in motivating the Arab Spring uprisings in Egypt, Libya, Benghazi, Jordan, and Syria, among other places. How's that been working out for ya?
But then you raised the volume a little and told Iran if they didn't stop building nuclear weapons, there would be serious consequences. They didn't. There weren't.
Then there was your red line drawn in the sands of Syria, which you said if crossed, would bring serious economic and military pressures to bear upon the government of their President Bashar al Assad. You even sent mean ol' US Navy warships to anchor off the Syrian coast. He did, and you didn't. In fact, you denied ever having drawn such a line. Colonel Oliver North said you just "drew phony red lines with a pink crayon." So much for that.
Now you are making baseless threats to Russian President Vladimir Putin. In three telephone conversations with the President, you supposedly warned that if Russia annexed Crimea, there would be dire economic consequences. He did. So as a "dire economic consequence," you "sanctioned" seven Russian and four Ukrainian private citizens, with the "consequence" that all their US assets would be seized. But you didn't check first to see if they have any US assets. Apparently they don't. Dmitry Rogozin, the deputy Russian prime minister and one of your targets, Tweeted, "Comrade @BarackObama, what should [you] do [to] those who have neither accounts nor property abroad? Or didn't U think about it?"
Again, Mr. President, you talked without thinking. Russia's deputy prime minister laughed off your sanctions as appearing to have been drawn up by "some prankster." Even your RINO buddy, Senator John McCain (R-AZ), called the crisis "the ultimate result of a feckless foreign policy where no one believes in America's strength anymore." Meanwhile a government-backed Russian TV journalist warned that if offended, his country could turn the United States into a heap of "radioactive ash." That is serious business, Mr. President. And they have the means to do it!
My greatest fear is that in an effort to prove your manhood, you will now do something even more stupid, and get us all killed. Why don't you just stay on the golf course where you belong? There, "walking softly" is appropriate, and a taxpayer-funded caddy will be provided to carry your "big stick" for you.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
